Could Win - Kerry Washington "Confirmation", Kirsten Dunst "Fargo", or Lili Taylor "American Crime"
Should Win - Sarah Paulson "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story"
Commentary - Oh come on Emmy voters! PLEASE DON'T SCREW THIS UP AGAIN! Sarah Paulson has churned out incredible performance after incredible performance on American Horror Story for five season (she is nominated again this year in Supporting). Every year you manage to screw it up and not give her an Emmy, despite continually nominating her. This is your opportunity to make things right. Kerry Washington, Kirsten Dunst, and Lili Taylor are all fantastic in their roles this season, and any of them would be worthy winners, and all are possibilities. But this is Sarah Paulson's year. Her role as Marcia Clark is simply jaw-dropping, the series is clearly the most popular of the bunch, and most importantly: it is time.
